Class ResolvedType

  • Direct Known Subclasses:

    public abstract class ResolvedType
    extends Object
    Type abstraction that represents Java type that has been resolved (i.e. has all generic information, if any, resolved to concrete types). Note that this is an intermediate type, and all concrete instances MUST be of type JavaType from "databind" bundle -- this abstraction is only needed so that types can be passed through JsonParser.readValueAs(java.lang.Class<T>) methods.

    • Method Detail

      • getRawClass

        public abstract Class<?> getRawClass()
        Accessor for type-erased Class of resolved type.
      • hasRawClass

        public abstract boolean hasRawClass​(Class<?> clz)
      • isAbstract

        public abstract boolean isAbstract()
      • isConcrete

        public abstract boolean isConcrete()
      • isThrowable

        public abstract boolean isThrowable()
      • isArrayType

        public abstract boolean isArrayType()
      • isEnumType

        public abstract boolean isEnumType()
      • isInterface

        public abstract boolean isInterface()
      • isPrimitive

        public abstract boolean isPrimitive()
      • isFinal

        public abstract boolean isFinal()
      • isContainerType

        public abstract boolean isContainerType()
      • isCollectionLikeType

        public abstract boolean isCollectionLikeType()
      • isReferenceType

        public boolean isReferenceType()
        Whether this type is a referential type, meaning that values are basically pointers to "real" values (or null) and not regular values themselves. Typical examples include things like AtomicReference, and various Optional types (in JDK8, Guava).
      • isMapLikeType

        public abstract boolean isMapLikeType()
      • hasGenericTypes

        public abstract boolean hasGenericTypes()
        Method that can be used to find out if the type directly declares generic parameters (for its direct super-class and/or super-interfaces).
      • getParameterSource

        public Class<?> getParameterSource()
        Since 2.7: does not have meaning as parameters depend on type resolved.
        Accessor that can be used to find out type for which parameterization is applied: this is often NOT same as what getRawClass() returns, but rather one of it supertype.

        For example: for type like HashMap, raw type is HashMap; but this method would return Map, because relevant type parameters that are resolved (and accessible using containedType(int) and getKeyType()) are parameter for Map (which may or may not be same as type parameters for subtype; in case of HashMap they are, but for further subtypes they may be different parameters or possibly none at all).

      • getKeyType

        public abstract ResolvedType getKeyType()
        Method for accessing key type for this type, assuming type has such a concept (only Map types do)
      • getContentType

        public abstract ResolvedType getContentType()
        Method for accessing content type of this type, if type has such a thing: simple types do not, structured types do (like arrays, Collections and Maps)
      • getReferencedType

        public abstract ResolvedType getReferencedType()
        Method for accessing type of value that instances of this type references, if any.
        Referenced type, if any; null if not.
      • containedTypeCount

        public abstract int containedTypeCount()
        Method for checking how many contained types this type has. Contained types are usually generic types, so that generic Maps have 2 contained types.
      • containedType

        public abstract ResolvedType containedType​(int index)
        Method for accessing definitions of contained ("child") types.
        index - Index of contained type to return
        Contained type at index, or null if no such type exists (no exception thrown)
      • containedTypeName

        public abstract String containedTypeName​(int index)
        Method for accessing name of type variable in indicated position. If no name is bound, will use placeholders (derived from 0-based index); if no type variable or argument exists with given index, null is returned.
        index - Index of contained type to return
        Contained type at index, or null if no such type exists (no exception thrown)
      • toCanonical

        public abstract String toCanonical()
        Method that can be used to serialize type into form from which it can be fully deserialized from at a later point (using TypeFactory from mapper package). For simple types this is same as calling Class.getName(), but for structured types it may additionally contain type information about contents.
